Thank you for considering helping us. Your contribution to this site will enable us to keep writing and ministering to young couples around the world, free of charge, and free of advertisements. This page provides brief context for why we’re asking for support, and a disclaimer about what that actually means.
Our story (quickly)
We started this blog because we felt God prompted us to do so. We realized that young couples don’t always receive the best advice before heading into marriage, and since we were married young (at 20 & 21 years old), we thought we had something of value to bring to the conversation.
Since January of 2013, we’ve spent countless hours creating content (writing, videos, software, and images). We’ve also spent considerable time ministering to couples one-on-one, via phone, email, and in person. This has been an extremely rewarding season for us, and we’ve recently come to the realization that we will be writing for the rest of our lives. God made this very clear to us in May of 2014.
Why we’re asking for support
While Fierce Marriage has grown at a healthy pace, we have been the biggest hindrance. Our time is scarce because we both work jobs and write in our off-hours. This has been sustainable, but we realized that if we don’t change something fast, one of two things will likely happen: we will burn out, or the blog will stagnate.
We want to spend more time ministering and building Fierce Marriage into a timeless, valuable resource for generations to come. To do that, we need to supplement our income so we can spend less time at our current work and more time in this work.
That’s why we came up with this plan, and a few partnership options (below the disclaimer).
The required disclaimer
We have to include this because, well, people are crazy and unpredictable on the internet. Also, there are plenty of shady scammers and websites, so let us be forthcoming here. We have to be crystal clear, so please read this carefully.
